Weight Control and Joint Care for Pets

Weight control

Maintaining your pet at a healthy weight helps prevent or minimize a variety of health risks including arthritis, joint problems, diabetes, heart disease, and breathing problems.

Healthy weight is achieved and maintained through a balanced diet and exercise. If your pet is overweight, our veterinarians can create a weight-loss plan specific to your pet’s individual needs. In addition to reducing food and increasing exercise, we have other options such as prescription diet foods and weight-loss medication.

Joint care

Older pets frequently suffer from arthritis and joint pain. Proper joint care can increase your pet’s quality of life. In addition to maintaining a healthy weight, we offer several supplements for joint health. We also have prescription diet foods to help keep joints healthy.

Please consult your veterinarian about optimal weight, exercise, nutrition, and possible medications for your pet’s needs.
